Cannabis is a wonderful gift of nature with phenomenal healing power to combat several fatal diseases. Despite its enormous health benefits, unfortunately its gigantic potential to alleviating human sufferings largely went untapped as cultivation and usage of cannabis was declared illegal in most parts of the world.
With more scientific evidence proving healing character of Cannabis in easing suffering from cancer, glaucoma, HIV or AIDS, Hepatitis C, Parkinson’s disease and other serious conditions, the perceptions as well as attitudes and behaviours regarding cannabis are reshaping.
In face of strong public opinion and conclusive empirical evidence, governments around globe are considering relaxing laws that have prohibited the realization of its true healing potential and myriad benefits to mankind.
World and cannabis:
The amazing character of cannabis to relieve the pain and sufferings of seriously ill patients coupled with a growing scientific evidence have forced many states around the world to look at laws that suppress cannabis cultivation and use. Leading the move Cannada is likely to become first Western country to legalise cannabis after government’s intentions to introduce necessary legalisation next year. A recent survey shows that 68% of Canadians support government’s intended legislation. Uruguay is the first country in the world to fully legalize cannabis in 2013.
More recently, Germany announced to legalise cannabis early next year for medicinal purposes. Admitting the medicinal efficacy of cannabis Germany’s Health Minister Hermann Groehe stated; “Our goal is that seriously ill patients are treated in the best possible way”. While in USA four states have taken their own decisions to legalise the recreational use of cannabis.
